Depths 2 Jesus Sustains

Posted on September 8, 2017 at 9:35 AM


Somehow Jesus You have sustained me here in the depths of the sea. My lungs are no longer desperately crying for oxygen, my mind is focused on You. You know where the Treasure is, and You are leading me there. What is the Treasure? It’s why I have chosen to undertake this journey. The treasure is discovering what is in the heart of the Creator. What plans? What thoughts? What strategy, proposals, ways has He designed for my life? for the world?

As we swim farther down, the pressure begins to build in my lungs and my head. It builds to a crushing intensity; can I survive it? “Jesus!” I cry out! “Help me.” I begin turning in circles. Where are You Lord? Nowhere? “Jesus, you promised in Your Word You would never leave me, never fail me!”

Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you;

He will never leave you nor forsake you.

Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”


As this thought crosses my brain, it leaves a trail of light behind. His Word is true. He is not a man that he should lie nor the son of man that He should change His mind. I do not see you with my eyes, Jesus, but I know You are nearby.

Then I hear my Lord speak, “Mary, in life you will face many storms, and some will seem so painful that you could fear they would kill you; or the pressure may be so severe as to challenge your very faith. What You have chosen now (to trust My Word) will sustain you through any intimidation that tries to lead you to give up. Trust in Me and I will always navigate you through the arm-twisting harassment, and ease your torment.”


With these words the pressure relented and my body began sinking again as the muscles relaxed. Jesus, You are a tough trainer like a sergeant in the military training troops for war. There is a greater battle coming, Jesus. Thank You for being tough!

Have you met General Jesus? Remember to trust in Him and not struggle against the goads as was the case with Saul:


Acts 9:4-6 (NKJV)

4 Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”

5 And he said, “Who are You, Lord?”

Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.

It is hard for you to kick against the goads.”

Trusting in God and in His Word is the vehicle that conquers any situation! Digesting this truth into our soul is a sure defense against the enemy. Stand fast in your storms! Believe. Trust.

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
